Re: Generator Problems
I am pretty sure the transfer switch is operating correctly. Here is how I tested it:
The power switching box has 1 set of lugs (hot and neutral) for shore power and 1 set of lugs for generator power. I took a 110 power cord and crimped on some ends so I could wire in my power and mimmic shore power and generator power. So I first un-did the shore power connections at the power switching box and connected my fabricated power cord and then plugged it in to my house 110v. Everything worked just fine. Microwave, battery charger, all the 110 outlets, everything worked. Then I removed the power cord and connected it to the generator input at the power switching box. It took about 30 seconds and the power switching box switched and everything worked as well.
So, the power switching box is good, my generator is not giving me good stuff coming in to make the power switching box work properly. It measures OK 123 VAC but it might be dirty, I don't have an occiliscope to check it.
You are right, it is a Todd Engineering 30 amp switching box. I tried to get a hold of Todd Engineering because I have a lifetime warranty certificate for the box. 1-800-HEY-TODD does not work anymore and from other posts on the web, they are out of business. Unless someone can tell me how to get a hold of them, I guess I am on my own.
